and yet if you were to apply Occam's razor to Avery's first conviction when he was 22, you could probably say the same thing. The simplest explanation is usually the correct one, he's guilty.
But, it's thinking like that that had a man wrongly imprisoned for almost 20 years. The simplest explanation is not always the correct one. His first conviction was a lot more complicated than it seemed and the circumstances surrounding his most recent conviction are certainly more complex than his 1st.
On Feb. 11, 2016, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals will hear the motions Avery filed.
Steven Avery filed several motions Monday (1/11/16) before the Wisconsin Court of Appeals seeking to be released on bond and making a variety of due process allegations. Avery claims that since his property was searched illegally, the evidence collected against him should not be part of his case. Avery also claims a juror influenced and intimidated other jurors into voting guilty.

yeah, its a ten-part documentary(10 hours long) about two trials involving Steven Avery with actual footage of the legal proceedings. It has some twists and worth watching. It really hits home if you ever been accused of a crime that you didn't commit.
Has this got something to do with this Netflix drama? I've never seen it. Everybody is talking about it and I don't know why. Is this just another criminograpghy or is this something else?

Interesting find. There was a thread on ATS in December about the Netflix series. Several members posted further background info on the Avery family.
Netflix's Docuseries Making a Murderer
I found larger non-blurred photos of Edward Wayne Edwards and I don't think its the same guy. I found this as well:
Ohio investigators watched news of Edwards' arrest and recognized the man. He had left town in 1997, shortly after the homicide of a young man he'd treated like a son. "There was an attempt to take the young man in. He became very close to the family. They talked about adopting but that was not allowed, and the victim changed his given name to Edwards' last name," Geauga County, Ohio Sheriff's Department Sgt. Brian Johnston said. Shortly after Dannie Boy Gloeckner changed his name to Dannie Boy Edwards, he was found dead from a shotgun wound to the head.
Teresa Halbach was shot in the head. Maybe he murdered her and they planted the body and framed Avery for it. It is fairly obvious where the blood came from. The blood sample container. I find it odd that the FBI managed to formulate a test for EDTA within two weeks and claiming it was reliable.

One of the things that bugs me the most about this whole trial.
Officer Weigert calls in and talks to the dispatcher.
This right here is the fishiest thing I've ever seen. Something is definitely not right.
Why would he call in the tag 2 days before?
I'm thinking this guy found the car and had it moved to frame avery.
The Anonymous Letter
Buting and Strang wanted to show the jurors an anonymous letter that was mailed to the Manitowoc County Sheriff’s Department, which suggested that body parts were “burned in the smelter at 3am on Friday.” A smelter is a furnace commonly used for burning metals. The Friday is presumed to be Friday, November 4, 2005, a day before Teresa’s body was discovered. Buting stated that ignoring the letter showed how investigators ignored any evidence that didn’t fit their theory of what happened to Halbach.
